The International Transgender Day of Visibility was established in 2009 by activist Rachael Crandall to highlight the achievements of trans people and their positive contributions to their communities, as well as to bring to attention the ongoing discrimination and violence that trans people continue to face around the world. The International TDOV takes place every year on Mar. 31st.

This guide is intended to primarily provide library and community resources to the transgender community at Queen's, with a secondary goal of educating cisgender Queen's students, staff, and faculty, about the experiences of trans people in Canada and around the world by providing a selection of fiction and non-fiction books from across all libraries at Queen's as well as links to important web resources.

More books and resources by transgender, non-binary, and two-spirit authors at Queen's University Library, can be found in our featured Omni Collection for the International Transgender Day of Visibility, which features non-fiction titles, novels, journals, and comics. Additionally, more trans-related books, databases, web resources, and reference works can be found on Queen's Gender Studies research guide.
